    I have had this problem before with the same camera. The first time I accidentally dropped it and the lens was out. It got stuck that way and wouldn't budge. I ended up having to take it back to the store and exchange it for a new one. It happened again though about four months later, this time the batteries went dead and the lens was out. Now it won't move again and won't turn on. I would like to try to fix it if I can.

My daughter just had this problem with her camera. The camera was off with the lens barrel extended. When I looked at it closely, I noticed that the inner part of the lens barrel was at a slight angle to the camera. I pushed firmly on the low side of the inner part of the barrel, and it popped the rest of the way out. Camera works fine now. Good luck!

Lens will not open to take a picture

The first thing to try is new lithium ion batteries (Energizer Advanced or Duracell PowerPix) or quality rechargables. Battery type makes a difference with these cameras and regular alkalines (even new ones) often just don't cut it.

If it still doesn't turn on, or open up, press and hold the playback button [>] to start up the camera in Playback Mode (resets the lens).

If all else fails, the lens is probably jammed. If you bought it less than a year ago and saved the receipt, call Polaroid tech support and they may replace it. Be prepared to be without a camera for a few weeks.

Polaroid i533 digital camera

Here is how I fixed this problem. I grasped the lens around the base (larger part) like you would if you were going take off a beer bottle cap.

Very gently while sliding my thumb and index finger around the lens, I rocked it back and forth. DO NOT TRY TO TWIST OR PUSH,.....It felt like it "popped" back on track.

My assumption was it was probably hit from the side, and could not retract, once it was rocked back on track, it worked fine. It felt like it loosened a tiny bit as well.

Good luck.
